Hello Gavilan Peak Families,

I am proud to be the new Assistant Principal of Gavilan Peak! 

My career in education has been from a rural area in Tucson, inner-city Philadelphia, and the rest of the time in Deer Valley where I have found my educational home!  I love Deer Valley and truly believe in the mission of providing extraordinary educational opportunities to every learner, because every student truly deserves an extraordinary education!  

My husband and I have three kids (3, 9, 11).  We love spending time together and doing anything outdoors.  

I feel very lucky to be joining the Firebird family and I look forward to working with you this year.
